I used Hawk on my 06 3500 they were HD pads if I recall correctly. EBC is good stuff as well.

I've tried a number of different types of brakes - drilled/slotted rotors, ceramic pads, you name it. I've found that I get the best performance out of Carquest OEM brake rotors and pads.

Good idea.
Suppose I should do mine one of these days. It's been a while...
A long while. Hmmmm. Never, actually.

Whatever you chose to do I would do it to the rears as well. The problem may be masked by your ABS but years ago I changed to a different type of pad on the front brakes only and it screwed up the front rear/balance, resulting in a lot of skidding, excessive wear and overheating on the rear axle.

I just changed the front pads on the F250. Bellied right up to the Ford parts counter with a fat wallet.

Only complaint is that they did not provide a decal for that money. [emoticon]

YES and properly lubricate all mating surfaces on the calipers.

Kind of makes you wonder just how important it is to flush it.

A few years ago my daughter's husband had new brakes put on their Excursion, he told them he wanted the best pads they had - $450 for just the front pads. Two new Ford rotors plus labor on top of the $450.

They squealed like a pig all the time so they took it to an independent after several trips back to the dealer and had less expensive pads installed, squeal gone.
